Product Overview

In a year-long qualitative study, the author explored whether college-study-skills courses taken by a group of Black students could help them academically and socially integrate in a predominantly White private university. Using material from interviews and Vincent Tinto''s theory of student departure, this book addresses Black students'' initial academic struggles and study-skills courses and their triumphs and successes to survive socially in academic institutions.
